DENVER – Time is running out for voters deciding who to vote for in the Colorado Primary. It’s also running out for Gov. John Hickenlooper as he decides whether to sign a couple of the last bills passed by legislators before their session ended last month.

One of the bills that the Governor’s office has yet to schedule a signing for is the bill that would give people as young as 18-years-old old the authorization to sell full-strength beer at grocery stories once that becomes legal at the first of the year. 

ColoradoPolitics.com state house reporter Marianne Goodland says the bill was a “fairly ugly compromise” at the end of the legislative session.

She and Blair Miller of TheDenverChannel.com talk about that bill and hot political topics with Anne Trujillo on this weekend’s Politics Unplugged.
